Virtual Private Network (VPN) software allows access to campus-only resources from off-campus locations. The website provides bookmarks to campus-only resources directly through the web page. To use a remote desktop application or to access an application or system that is restricted while you are off campus, install the Pulse Secure VPN client.

Pulse Secure can be installed by logging into and clicking on the appropriate bookmark to download and install the desired version of Pulse Secure for your operating system (Windows 32 or 64 bit, Mac OS or Linux). The Pulse Secure ReadMe file contains installation and configuration instructions. Once it is installed, Pulse Secure will be listed in your programs and as a shortcut in the Windows System Tray or Mac Menu Bar. You do not need to access the SSL VPN web page each time you want to connect via VPN.
